this week, and republicans have been quick to figure out the problem. mitt romney. peggy noonan said his rolling campaign has been a calamity. shouldn't it puz puzzle us that romney's campaign is so incompetent, given his reputation for, well, competence. after all he founded one of the leading firms, turned around the salt lake city olympics and was a very successful governor. how did he get so clumsy so fast? in fact, the problem is not romney. but the new republican party, given the direction it has moved and pressures from the extreme, powerful elements, any nominee would face the same challenge. can you be a serious candidate for the general election while not outraging the republican base? fox news anchor brit hume refused to dwell on romney's economic policies he would put in place. why wouldn't mitt romney fluent in economics explain his economic policy? because any sensible answer would cause a firestorm in his party. it's obvious with a deficit of more of 7% of gross domestic product, any solution to our budgetary problems has to involve spending cuts and tax increases. ronald
not outraging the republican base? fox news anchor brit hume refused to dwell on romney's economic policies he would put in place. why wouldn't mitt romney fluent in economics explain his economic policy? because any sensible answer would cause a firestorm in his party. it's obvious with a deficit of more of 7% of gross domestic product, any solution to our budgetary problems has to involve spending cuts and tax increases. ronald reagan agreed to tax increases when it hit 4%. george w. bush did when it was 3% of gdp. but today's republican party is organized around the proposition that no matter the circumstances, there must never be a tax increase of any kind. the simpson-bowles proposal calls for $1 for every $3 of spending cut bus every republican presidential candidate during the primaries including romney pledge thad he or she would not accept $10 of spending cuts if that meant $1 of tax increases. so romney could present a serious economic plan with numbers that add up and then he would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be utterly vague about how to deal wit
the republicans -- if what romney and ryan are saying about obama and biden is true on medicare, why would the american medical association endorse our position? why would the national american hospital association? and most importantly, why would aarp endorse our program? [cheers and applause] they have no credibility. they have no credibility on this issue. secondly, what they don't tell you, equally as important as what they do tell you, what they would do on medicare. the first thing they would do, if they took the actions they are proposing to take were they to win in january of next year, you would eliminate the new benefit. $800 more for prescripping drugs, wellness visits, co-pays, et cetera. it would also move medicare trust fund to insol conveniencey -- this -- it would also move medicare trust fund to insolvency in 2016. they also don't want to tell you they are for medicare. they are for high-cost voucher care. they say it won't won't affect anyone on medicare now. it won't kick in for 10 years. but if you are 55 years old, it is going to kick in. here's what they do. first, a
in this country and that would in turn cause a revote in the republican party. so as a deficit, romney has a plan but it's a secret. the republican party has imposed a new kiechld political correctness on their leaders. they cannot speed certain words, taxes, talk about their speculations or ideas or their path because these are forbidden. he's trying to run a campaign without running afoul of his party's strictures. as for himself he's twisted himself into a pretzel, spoken vac youously. that's a straightjacket even peggy noon nan's eloquence can't get him out of this. for more on this, read my "washington pos "washington post" column this week on cnn.com/fa reek. let's get started. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com nt >>> for . >>> for eight years ma'am mud ahmadinejad has come to the u.s. general assembly and every time he's caused controversy, making accusations. this year was different. it was mostly platitudes about word peace but he had plenty of sharp comments in a series of interviews. his conversation with me was his final one. perhaps his final one on the world stage. you see, iran

's question about this. the problems were pulle -- the problem republicans have is that mitt romney has never c cracked the threshold of being a possible commander in chief. it does punish the obama record, and there's no question that osama bin laden took the wind out of the cells of the republican candidates. it was an enormous credential for obama. but because romney chose paul ryan, he in no way filled out the emptiness of his own resume in foreign policy. for that reason, he has not been able to exploit what should be an advantage. >> can you explain why susan rice insisted that the attack the embassy was the result of a demonstration? >> it is entirely possible -- may i -- >> i was asking mark. >> we like to hear from everybody. >> if you were actually trying to hide something, you would not send somebody out. it would maintain radio silence -- >> "radio silence" when an ambassador is murdered? >> can i finish? it may take a little while to figure out what happened. we don't even know for sure. fbi does not know whether it there was a mob that was exploited or was it set up by al qaeda

in the issue amongst governor romney, john boehner, mitch mcconnell, and the other leaders in the republican party including, of course, rnc chairman, reince. >> we need a united front. the administration lied because they didn't follow the narrative that bin laden's dead and gm is alive. bin laden is dead, great thing, but al-qaeda is alive and well and its affiliates killing u.s. ambassador and the three americans. where is the outrage, the legitimate outrage on the part of the republicans to come out to get to the baht dome of this? i think the story is going to have legs because it gets worse every day, and we should be dodging kerry now at every move saying what are you doing as a member of the senate in order to get to the bottom of this? you signed a letter. now, mr. kerry, what are you doing about itings and the president has to be held to account at the debates. even though this is a domestic debate wednesday, romney should question him on it. lou: your thoughts? you get the last word. >> i've been in des moines, iowa there, and people there are frustrated about what's going on in w

the expectations and raise them for republican mitt romney. this is a lost the pre-game fight, the hype before the first debate on wednesday suggesting that mitt romney has had all this practice in the g.m. primaries and we have beeng repn debates where he is practicing zingers to hit the president on the economy and other things. one of the president's top advisors saying that is not going to work. >> the american people will listen for not a clever line but a goodup to move the country forward. that is our focus. >> interesting, as well, a chance for the president, and the reason they pick nevada for this situation in terms of debate prep, this is a battleground state, early voting is about to start in a couple of weeks and he wants a rally tonight. also, this is the foreclosure capital of the country with unemployment rate here state-wide in the double digits far higher than the national average. so there are big economic challenges confronting the president. however, a lot of the public polls have then he is neck and neck with mitt romney. so the obama camp feels good. the issue would be r
in place. >> chris: a number of top republicans say when romney picked you as his running mate a little over a month ago they thought that this indicated you guys were going to run a bold reform agenda campaign. and, they are now expressing frustration that, instead of you changing romney, you have heard this, they've feel that romney is changing you, and you are running a much more cautious campaign, and, even your own good friend and wisconsin home state governor, scott walker, has gone on the radio to complain about this. >> i feel, the passion that paul has, transfer overo the nominee and i think, a little bit -- a little bit of push back from the folks in the national campaign. >> chris: he says he doesn't see passion, he doesn't see reform, he doesn't see fire in the belly. >> scott is a good buddy of mine and has been a good backer of mine, come out to me with mitt and myself to ohio, to iowa, to north carolina, to virginia, to florida. attend our town hall meetings. we were walking people through how we fix medicare and social security and create jobs and reform the tax code and
think governor romney speaks in perfect sound bites. i attended many of those republican debates. one thing that he's very good at is turning a negative question, a question directed to him into a positive question. making it a negative question on his opponent. he's a very skillful debater. he's been in dress rehearsal for five years. so, i suspect that governor mitt romney is going to come well prepared to put the president obama on defense. he'll try to make this about president obama and what the president will have to do early on is jump-start and make sure that governor romney never gets the ball back. >> other things working in governor romney's favor, challenger almost always do well in first debate. >> he really is prepared and he does speak in sound bites and he's very good at this. he's well prepared and he'll do well. the key to a debate, if you want to see how it moves the american people is to turn off the sound, watch the mannerisms, it's not what they say, there may be a zinger and that could change things, but it's not what they say it's their mannerisms. the presiden

this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thing is that median household income is down by more than $3,000. that is the real issue. lori: median incomes, talking about flat line, that is one of the crises of the jobs problem in this country that has been a reported. and let you mention it. tell me what you think the response should be. so far it has been just to tap the bailout package, the big stimulus in 2009. shouldn't it be a labour participation rates? that has been tumbling. creating jobs, but people are jumping out of the work force left and right. >> leaving jobs that pay $30 an ho
